    Hello, everyone.

    I am very, very close to getting a Macbook and a TS-570S to interface.

    I have linked the two using a RadioArena UD01KE data mode cable. There are drivers available for Windows to link that OS with a TS-570S through this cable, but on the Mac, I'm trying to get FLRIG to work. I could run the drivers on Windows in Virtualbox, but I'd prefer to get it working on OS X, as VMs are very resource-intense.

    Actually, the initialization is instant, but after FLRIG initializes, the TS-570S goes into full-time transmit, and I cannot find the button to toggle or un-key the transmission. It's starting up in USB, which is default. At this point, I'm closing FLRIG or unplugging the cable, but that's not what I should do.

    Any idea why it goes into TX, and how to toggle it off?

    Thank you! I hope to start sending PSK and JT-65 soon!

    I'm not sure why, but it is doing the same thing with my 590SG. I don't normally use Flrig as Fldigi provides me all of the controls I need, and there are no issues using it. You might want to reach out to the LINUXHAM mailing list on Groups.IO, the official Fldigi support list for macOS and Linux, to see if anyone else has experienced this.
